One-Owner 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S Coupe

We are pleased to offer this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S finished in Arena Red Metallic over a Cashmere Beige leather interior.  Introduced for the 1996 model year, the Carrera 4S featured an all-wheel-drive system along with the wide bodywork and styling of the Turbo model.  A one-owner car, this C4S was originally leased by the seller in 1995 before it was eventually purchased in 1997.  It has been diligently maintained throughout the years including a major engine-out service in 2020 and a rebuild of the power steering system in 2019.  Now with approximately 86k miles showing on the odometer, this Carrera 4S is being offered for auction by its original owner out of Kansas.

This 4S is finished in Arena Red Metallic, one of the most recognizable shades of the 993 generation.  Some minor dings and scratches are present throughout the exterior, and clear stone guards remain in place ahead of the rear wheels.  The CARFAX report shows the vehicle to have been involved in a sideswipe collision in September of 2020, and the seller reports the passenger side rear quarter panel to have been professionally repaired and refinished as a result.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery. This 993 rides on a set of 18” Turbo-look wheels with Porsche crest center caps and Pirelli P Zero tires showing date codes from 2017 in front and 2020 in the rear.

Inside, you will find a Cashmere Beige leather interior with optional supple leather seats.  Features include power-adjustable front seats, a black leather dashboard, Carrera 4S logo floor mats, and an upgraded Alpine radio.  The seller reports light wear on the driver’s seat and confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.

This 993 is equipped with an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six Varioram engine that sends up to 282 HP to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The seller reports that a major engine-out service was completed in 2020 including carbon cleaning and a complete reseal.  The clutch was also reportedly replaced in 2019 along with a rebuild of the power steering system.  CARFAX shows a long history of consistent service carried out by authorized Porsche dealers, namely Aristocrat Motor Co. and Porsche of Colorado Springs.

This sale will include a clean title. A nicely maintained example of one of the most sought-after models of the final air-cooled generation, this one-owner 993 Carrera 4S is just waiting to be cherished and enjoyed by a new caretaker.

    @Archer1 I have called the body shop and they are looking. Hoping they can find it before the end of the auction. Stay tuned.

  • Archer1 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Speedy53- Are you going to upload the pictures of the damaged area?

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 monthago

    Good morning to all. The auction ends in less than 3 hours. We are available for any last minute questions about our 993. This car is a beauty and runs great! It will bring you much joy as you motor on down the highway or find some nice winding roads to test. Driving it on a track is so much fun, as well. I have found a few more service records, but please know that we had regular maintenance for the entire 25+ years that we have owned this car, and any major repairs are addressed in the service
    history printout from Aristrocrat Porsche. The damage from a side swipe accident was repaired at an excellent body shop that we chose. We had planned to keep our 993 to pass on to our kids. It will be hard to let this baby go, but retirement calls, and we are slowing down. Going to play some golf and buy a fishing boat!
    Thank you all for your interest. We are standing by for any last minute questions.

    @Speedy53 @Speedy53- No worries , thank you for your effort.

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 monthago

    @Archer1 I downloaded them this morning. I will be in contact in the morning to get those done. I’m sorry they weren’t posted today.

    @Speedy53 - Hello, any update on the pictures prior to collision repairs?

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 monthago

    Hello there! There are less than 21 hours to bid on this gem. We are here to answer any further questions you may have.

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 monthago

    @Mdiesel64 Thank you! We love this car!
    We have taken very good care of our 993, and want it to go to a good home. I have a few pictures of some of the minor dings that I will post today.

  • Mdiesel64 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Gorgeous example.

    Do you have any photos of the dings noted in the description? Wondering how minor they are and where they are located to judge the possibility of having them removed.

    Thanks!

    @United1963 Hi Michael. I wanted to let you know that the auction for our 993 lasts until Thursday at 2:00pm. I think I mistakingly told you Wednesday.

    Also, we have the clear title in hand, so there will be no delays there.

    And we are including 4 mounted winter tires with the sale.

    Hope to see a bid from you.

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 monthago

    Hello, we are available to answer any questions. I want to let you all know that the title on this car is clear, no liens as of August 26, 2021.

    Also, we will include 4 mounted winter tires with the sale. My husband always insisted on putting winter tires on our cars, and didn’t leave the 993 out. With all wheel drive and winter tires, this baby never skidded or got stuck if we were caught in winter weather. The shop where we had the tires switched out called our 993 “an amazing German snow mobile!”

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 monthago

    @Archer1 Hello and thank you for your interest in our 993. We have been looking for a digital photo, but haven’t found one yet. I will attempt to call the body shop tomorrow to see if they took photos. I will post if I am successful.

    @Speedy53- Could you please share pictures of damage area prior to repair being performed.

    @Speedy53 Hi Speedy - That’s what I was hoping to do. I live at Falcon Ridge out in Lenexa. My name is Michael. Thanks

  • emg2919 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @speedy53 Great example, love the story and history behind it. I'll be watching closely in the next few days. Do you happen to have any photos of the inside of the hood, showing the sticker that has the VIN and options on it? Thanks!

    I would like to let you all know that the black dash and black door trim is an extra option with Porsche for the tan interior. Today Porsche charges $6,000.00 extra for that option in the 911’s.

    Hello, and thank you for your interest in this amazing car. We are the owners, and will be checking in often to answer any questions you may have.

    @8pxCkr Hello. Thank you for your interest is our 993. We will answer every question as best we can. We are in the process of getting ready to move across country. My husband packed the service records I had set aside, so we can't find them right away. I contacted our service advisor at Aristocrat Porsche in Merriam, Kansas. He emailed me a comprehensive report that I highlighted and numbered each item that was repaired, replaced or serviced. My husband, a surgeon and perfectionist, had every issue addressed in a timely fashion. The accident noted did not leave the car undriveable. My husband drove it to the repair shop and left it there for the repairs.

    Beautiful car. If you could post the receipts from the 2020 engine out service so that we can see all the work done, that would be appreciated. Pictures of the accident would obviously help bidders. Carfax says car was towed which makes it sound like more than scratches. Thanks!

    @Sunny Good morning. Are you referring to picture number 35, and possibly 48? The switches on the left are rear window defogger, and fog lights. Then there is a space for the heated side mirrors, which is for the Cabriolet only (blank for the Coupe). Then there is the cigarette lighter, which I forgot to plug back in for the pictures. Please let me know if you have more questions.

  • Sunny (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    In picture #36 there seems to be a place for a switch that is blank....between the vent to the left and what appears to be a light switch to the right. What would that be ?

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @United1963 I will answer any questions you have to the best of my ability on this forum..

  • United1963 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Speedy53 Can we talk off line?

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @United1963 Yes, it still available. We were told when we bought this car that it was the first Carrera 4S that was shipped to the US from Germany. Do you have any questions for me?

  • United1963 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Hi There,

    I’m local here in KC. Not a dealer just an enthusiast. Is car still available? Thanks

    The CarFax shows 3 owners, but we are the only owners. We leased the car first, then loved it so much we bought it. Then we put it into our family trust. One owner, I promise.

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @letMeIn I don’t think so. The repairs were less than $900. It was mostly scratched. I have the repair invoice if you are interested.

  • letMeIn 1 month, 1 weekago

    do you have pics from the accident ?? also, is this 1 owner or 3 owner vehicle

  • Speedy53 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago
